Cristiano Ronaldo’s threat to Juventus refuted

Reports that Juventus talisman was eyeing up a Biaconeri exit two years before the end of his contract has been debunked.

La Repubblica reported on Thursday that Juve’s Champions League exit had prompted Ronaldo to consider his future at the club, despite having three years left on his contract.

Both La Repubblica and Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Ronaldo was left furious by the manner of Juve’s Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Ajax, a result which ensures that he won’t be taking part in the last four of the competition for the first time since the 2019/10 campaign.

Meanwhile, a journalist with close links to Cristiano Ronaldo has refuted claims that the No 7 is thinking about leaving Juventus.

Edu Aguirre told El Chiringuito – which broke the news of Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid – that was not the case.
